Welcome to The Wanderers Club
It was a group of young rugby players who came together in 1886 as the first Wanderers Rugby Club in Johannesburg, quickly followed by another group calling themselves the Wanderers Cricket Club but the Wanderers Club that still exists today was formed in 1888. These young men had “wandered” from other mining towns, like Kimberley, attracted to the mining camp that grew from the discovery of gold in the Witwatersrand. Since those historic days, Wanderers has provided a place for the people of Johannesburg to come together and celebrate life. Regarded by many as an extension of their own homes, the Club is at the centre and heart of sport, recreation, and business activities not only in Johannesburg, but in South Africa.
The Wanderers Club mission is to be the Premier Sporting Club in South Africa, striving to understand, recognise, and meet needs of Members, stakeholders, partners. Through ongoing product development, investment, service delivery systems. Through developing a technological capacity, promoting partnerships, new revenue streams. And recognising the need to transform the demographic profile of the Club.
